FAQs

  • WHAT IS THE AGE LIMIT FOR SKYDIVING?
  • There is no age limit but we don’t encourage anyone under 10 years old. If you are under 18 years of age, you will need a parent or guardian to sign the consent form on your behalf. Young children are assessed on a case-by-case basis. It will depend on whether they can fit properly into the harness. You must be 17 years and above to do the 18,500ft jump.
  • WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
  • Wear comfortable clothes that are suitable for the weather. The temperature in winter can be very cold so a few layers are a good idea. Closed toe, lace up shoes are recommended (trainers rather than hiking boots). We’ll give you a jumpsuit to go over your clothes, plus a hat, goggles and gloves during winter.
  • WHAT IF I WEAR CONTACT LENSES OR GLASSES?
  • No problem - Contact lenses can be worn under your goggles and we have slightly larger goggles that fit snuggly over the top of glasses.
  • CAN I BRING SPECTATORS?
  • Absolutely. The beauty about our dropzone is that it all happens at the same place and so your friends and family will be able to see you board the aircraft and will then be able to watch you land. If you’re using one of our free pick up options, we will try our best to fit your spectators in. However, spaces are limited so we can’t guarantee them a lift.
  • IS THERE A WEIGHT LIMIT?
  • Yes, for safety reasons we are unable to take anyone over 100kg. There is a weight limit of 90kg for the 18,500 jump. If you are unsure of your weight then feel free to come to the dropzone and weigh yourself on our scales.
  • WHAT WEATHER CONDITIONS PREVENT ME FROM SKYDIVING?
  • For safety reasons, we are unable to jump in complete cloud cover, rain or high winds. Taupo has its own microclimate and it can change very quickly. Your safety is very important to us so we will make sure the conditions are ideal before you jump.
  • WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
  • If the weather is bad when you phone to confirm your jump we will re-schedule you for another time later that day or the next day depending on your schedule. We will give you a choice of times that we have available and you can let us know which one suits you.
  • WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
  • We are located at Taupo Airport, 7 minutes south of Taupo township. Once you’re on the main airport road, take the first right turn and you will see our hangar, it’s black with a pink sculpture of our plane on the front.
  • HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
  • You need to allow 2 ½ to 3 hours from the time you arrive at the dropzone to complete your skydive. The time we give you is your booking time and not the time you will be boarding the plane. We always aim to have customers on the plane as soon as possible, however sometimes we are delayed by factors out of control such as weather changes, restrictions with other aircraft in the area etc.
  • HOW LONG ARE WE IN THE PLANE FOR?
  • The flight to 15,000ft takes about 20 minutes.
  • HOW LONG IS THE FREEFALL?
  • That depends on what height you jump from:
  • 12,000 feet – (3,650 metres) – 45 seconds
  • 15,000 feet – (4,575 metres) – 60 seconds
  • 18,500 feet – (5,638 metres) – 75 seconds
  • HOW LONG IS THE RIDE WITH THE PARACHUTE OPEN?
  • After the parachute opens you’ll have about 5 minutes before safe-landing.
